Even before Lok Sabha elections are held and he came to power, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has begun his work for the third term – that begins only June, 2024. This shows his confidence that he would come back to power after the polls. But, his opponents call it a tactic of mind game against his rivals in the elections.

PM Modi on March 3, Sunday chaired a day-long meeting of his Council of Ministers as they brainstormed over the vision document for “Viksit Bharat: 2047” and a detailed action plan for the next five years. Government sources said a 100-day agenda for immediate steps to be taken after a new government is formed in May was deliberated upon during the meeting for its quick implementation.

They said the roadmap for “Viksit Bharat” is a result of more than two years of intensive preparation and involved a “whole of government” approach involving all ministries and wide-ranging consultations with state governments, academia, industry bodies, civil society, scientific organisations and mobilisation of youths for inputs.


Over 2,700 meetings held

“More than 2,700 meetings, workshops and seminars were held at various levels. Suggestions of more than 20 lakh youths were received,” one official said.

The roadmap for “Viksit Bharat” has a comprehensive blueprint with clearly articulated national vision, aspirations, goals and action points, the sources said, adding that its goals include areas such as economic growth, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ease of living, ease of doing business, infrastructure and social welfare.

Several ministries articulated their ideas in the meeting, which is likely to be the last such get-together before the Lok Sabha polls are announced.

Modi will be touring as many state as possible before the issue of poll schedule by the Election Commission. The schedule is likely to be announced on March 14 or 15. Once the schedule is announced, model code of conduct comes into effect and the PM cannot participate in any official programmes. So, all official engagements will be completed by that time.
